Saturday, October 19, 2013 the Mary Mitchell Family and Youth Center hosted a community health walk around the neighborhood and Crotona Park.
It started 9:30 in the morning, supplying the supporters with a light breakfast and ended at 12 noon with a delicious lunch.
Even though it was staged as a health walk, it was more than that. It was a community gathering and information session. Before we set out to walk, the director of the Mary Mitchell Family and Youth Center, Heidi Hynes, welcomed the sponsoring organizations that came to support the Mary Mitchell:
- Mothers on the Move
- University Neighborhood Housing Program
- the POINT
- Concourse House
- Mt. Hope Housing Co.
- Isis Community Circle
- Bronx Health Reach
- Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition
- Montefiore CATCH Program
- BLK Projek
- Fordham University Dorothy Day Center
- La Familia Verde
- Green Worker Cooperatives
- TANIMA Dance
Together as a community we marched around the neighborhood chanting songs and holding signs promoting fair economy,physical activity, access to fresh food, school health, good housing, a clean environment and individual wellness.
